715 BCE - Silk Road
- The silk road connected East, South, and Western Asia with the Mediterranean and European world, as well as parts of North and East Africa. Some of the goods traded included luxuries such as silk, satin, hemp and other fine fabrics, musk, other perfumes, spices, medicines, jewels, glassware, and even rhubarb, as well as slaves. Unintentional items were also carried throughout the silk road such as the Black Death.
